Logan's Close

Logan's Close

Logan's Close were formed by founding members Scott Rough, Carl Marah and Michael Reilly. The three lads all came from Dunbar, East Lothian and were childhood friends. In their teens they discovered they each shared a love of 60s music and would regularly get together to listen to records whilst becoming intoxicated. After some time the trio began to wish that there were a band of that style on the Edinburgh scene they could go see - but the current music scene in Edinburgh had nothing readily available of that sort. It was this realisation that spawned the band: the three lads could be said band.

They secured their first gig at Edinburgh strip club "Club Rouge" at the start of 2014 and took the name "Logan's Close" from a small street close in Dunbar the trio would regularly walk down on their travels. The gig was a success, and for the next year the band would hone their sound and direction with care and precision. Logan's Close steadily soared: playing the main stage of Linkylea festival as well as performing at almost every small Edinburgh venue regularly. In 2015, the band were invited to perform on STV Edinburgh. They performed their original composition "Kitty Cat", which elevated the band to much wider recognition in Edinburgh, and at the end of 2015, the band released their debut EP at a packed-out City Cafe.

2016 saw the band venture down to London, where they performed at Nambucca in Holloway, as well as the legendary Dublin Castle in Camden. They returned to the Edinburgh Fringe, performing relentlessly at the mad house which is the Cow Shed under George IV Bridge, and after enlisting bass aficionado Ollie Turbitt, they then in journeyed down to Liverpool to support Martin Stephenson & The Daintees at the sold out Cavern Club. Immediately after this they supported Edinburgh band The RIsing Souls at the Liquid Rooms for their EP Launch. Following this, the band appeared on "Live At Five" on STV Glasgow, performing another original song "Listen To Your Mother". The reach of this performance was staggering and led the band to host their very own single launch for the tune at Edinburgh's Voodoo Rooms in April of this year. The single launch was a sell-out purely on pre-sales, and the night itself was a massive success. The song is now available on all major digital platforms and the official music video is on YouTube.
Having performed at Liverpool's famous Cavern Club again as well as London's established 100 Club already this year, the band are looking foward to some more unannounced big shows later on in the year.
